GW offers summer options

A variety of on-campus buildings and services will be available for GW students staying in D.C. after Commencement including the Marvin Center, Gelman Library and the Smith Center.

Burger King, Montague’s Deli, Starbucks Coffee, Jamba Juice, Einstein’s Bagels and Provisions Market will remain open during the summer. GW venues only accept Debit Dollars and cash during the summer, said Lyle Vaughan, assistant director of Auxiliary and Institutional Services.

Vaughan said the summer schedule begins Monday.

GW has not determined the hours of operation for each station, but Vaughn said the venues will only serve breakfast and lunch before they close in the afternoon.

The GW Bookstore will remain open most weeks from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. The store will remain open certain days during Colonial Inauguration weekends.

The Gelman Library begins an adjusted schedule Wednesday. The library will remain open Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to midnight and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday. Saturday hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday, 9 a.m. to midnight.

The Eckles Memorial Library on the Mount Vernon Campus operate Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

No other facilities at Mount Vernon will be open during the summer due to the extensive construction on the campus, Mount Vernon Executive Dean Grae Baxter said. The shuttle from Foggy Bottom to Mount Vernon will not run during the summer.

The Smith Center, which begin its summer schedule, will be open Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. The pool will be available Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. After June 19 new hours will be posted.

Non-GW students must pay $50 a month to use the Smith Center during the summer.

The new Health and Wellness Center’s summer hours have not been finalized, but the building is still expected to open in the middle of June, said Jamie Ahrens, payroll and staffing coordinator at the Smith Center.

The University Police Department’s 4-RIDE escort service runs the same operating hours during the summer, but the Colonial Express shuttle service will not be available, said UPD Director Dolores Stafford. The 4-RIDE service is available from dusk until dawn every day of the week. Stafford said non-GW students living in the residence halls during the summer can use the service if they have a GWorld card.

Non-GW students living on campus this summer can obtain a GWorld card if they want to open a Debit Dollars account.
